Camps A Rising comes out of the experience of the Standing Rock Water Protectors Camp. We learned that great numbers of people care about the health of our water. The success of that camp is spreading all over the country with new camps establishing coast to coast. As the movement grows, so must the logistics and funding of gear and supplies. With so many additional camps it’s essential resources are managed well.
Camps A Rising is volunteer run, and exists to aid regional Water Protector Camps by collecting and distributing supplies where needed. Camps A Rising supports peaceful actions that will direct the fossil fuel industry toward proven renewable energy sources.
Members encourage friends, relatives and neighbors to donate new and used gear and supplies to Camps A Rising. Volunteers help establish local drop off sites for donations, which are then transported to regional supply depots. Camps A Rising then redistributes that gear to selected Water Protectors camps. An online database is available for camp leaders to request specific items.
Local Camps A Rising affiliates supporting their own regional Water Protector Camps allow for the most efficient distribution of gear. Our goal is for an active network of drop off sites and supply depots supporting Water Protection Camps develop around the country.
